  • Palabras Pintorescas - Household remedies of the old days

    ‘To know what you do know and not know what you do not know is true knowledge.” So said Confucius a very long time ago. This quote is on the cover of a very old and terribly worn cookbook that belonged to my grandmother, which she inherited from my mother.

    This is one of the oldest cookbooks I have in my big collection of cookbooks.

    The title reads, “Tested recipes compiled by Ladies of the congressional Church, Lancaster, Wis.” This is the second and revised edition and might have been published in the late 1800s.

  • Rangerettes clinch 2-2A hoops title

    Pecos fell to 8-17 overall and 2-5 in District 2-2A.

    The New Mexico Highlands softball team (4-5) opened its home slate with a doubleheader sweep of Oklahoma Panhandle State (2-10) by scores of 8-2 and 2-1 in the nightcap Wednesday at Cowgirl Field.

    The story of the day may have been the Cowgirls’ defense. After committing 20 errors in its first seven games of the season, Highlands had only one error in each contest against the Aggies.

  • Intrigue in 2-3A

    The road provided different fortunes for the Meadow City’s girls’ basketball teams on Wednesday night.

    If RHS defeats Pojo this coming week, West clinches the district title for the regular season. If Pojo wins, the Elkettes will meet West in a one-game playoff for the top spot.
